I couldn't find the right thread/forum section for this so I put it in the legend section. I was wondering what everyone thought was the best story in the Tomb Raider series up to date.

Post the name of the game you thought had the best story and why along with a screenshot maybe. Gold versions and expansion packs do not apply.
---------------------

My best story was Tomb Raider: Legend, because it felt like Lara was a human and not just a game character for the first time in the series.

The stories are a bit flat. Maybe the TR3 one was cool but confusing. Tr never had a mysterious thrilling story.

i still think the last revelation was the best simply becuase it had all classic elements to it. every question and issue possed at the onset was solved at the end, and the gamer went away feeling that everything had come fully circle... except for that great cliff-hanger ended :tmb:

angel of darkness had a great story POTENTIAL but its execution was total :cen: imo...
i love angel of darkness and the idea behind it, and the lara's whole post egypt emotional crisis... but none of this was over satisfyingly covered in the game.

legend had a fantastic story. sweet and simple, and yet so powerful and moving. i don't agree with many of the changes it made to lara's bio, but besides that i'd say it is one of the best stories of them all.

tr1 had a cute story... nothing profound, but great enough for a first game ;)

and tr2 and 3... well, great story ideas if you dig into it and work it out, but not very satisfyingly executed imo. bartoli was not a very prominent and nemesis who barely ever appeared in the game, and the location jumping in tr3 made that whole story a little disjointed.

over-all though i really think there is a lot to these tomb raider games, and quite a number of hidden depths in our beloved lara that creep through in the games :tmb: :jmp:

Well, I liked the stories from I to III.

I is the most creative.
III is second.
II is number three.

However, it seems to have gone downhill from there.

I don't like IV. Egypt, Egypt, Egypt, done this already, bored, what's next?
V has no real storyline. It's 4 mini-games strung together. That being said, I did enjoy the Rome levels. Russia not as much, but was still fun.
VI was interesting, but only as a mild diversion.
VII would be on the first list, except for one thing: They rewrote Lara's past. I preferred the independent, made-her-own fortune Lara, not trust-fund Lara.

So far, I think the best story is Legend, followed by AOD - a really powerful plotline - and TRLR.

BTW, this should be in General Chat, as it's covering all TR games :)

Moving to GC.

Angel of Darkness had the best idea (unfortunately butchered and watered down in the final release), The Last Revelation overall the best story.

It 's funny how most people didn't like playing AOD allthough liked the story.

Here 's my choice:

1. AOD
2. Last Revelation
3. Legend
4. Chronicles
5. Dagger

I haven't played the other two yet.

The stories in the Tomb Raider games always been kind of weak, imo. Legend or AoD had the best storyline, out of them all.

AoD.

AoD, definitily. TR 2 was so fun and great to play but the story... so weak it's not even funny.

100% Angel Of Darkness, no doubt. :D It finally seemed as if Lara had emotions and was vunerable to the world and her surroundings rather than always being ahead of her enemies etc. :) It was almost like watching a movie! A GOOD movie. =D

Either TR4 or AoD. The latter's storyline was pretty good (if convoluted and with too many loose ends for my liking) but the game didn't really live up to it. :wve:

Fave plots:

1: Tomb Raider 1 and 4, love them equally
2: Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness
3: Tomb Raider 2
4: Tomb Raider 3
5: Legend
6: Tomb Raider Chronicles - it wasn't really a plot, just a collection of tales.

1. TR1
2. Legend
3. The Last Revelation
4. TR2
5. TR3
6. Angel of Darkness
7. Chronicles

I cannot believe how many people LIKED the AOD story - it was so messy and un-tombraiderish.

AoD :D

sam_raider_05: AoD had TR story, only the levels weren't tombraiderish
